HSE review raises concerns over Fee for Intervention scheme

A report into the effectiveness of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has called for a re-evaluation of the Fee for Intervention (FFI) scheme, implying that it is undermining trust between employers and the regulator. Under the FFI scheme, companies that breach health and safety law are liable for fines to cover the cost of HSE call-outs, inspections, investigations and enforcement action. The Triennial Review, which was carried out by Chair of the Engineering Employers’ Federation (EEF) Martin Temple, was on the whole, positive about the HSE’s work, although a  number of recommendations  were made to make it more efficient and innovative. Terry Woolmer, Head of Health and Safety Policy at EEF, stated that  the Review “missed an opportunity to look in more depth at establishing a unified health and safety agency, including local authorities, to cover all workplace health and safety issues.”
